Tools

Maintaining your own serger saves money and many times anyone can do it, given the correct tools and instructions.  Here are some of the tools we use in caring for our equipment.  Check back periodically as we add new tools from time to time as they become available.   

 

We strongly recommend against using canned air - as this just blows oily linty sludge further into parts of the machine that are not easily cleaned out.  Use the mini vac tools and any makeup brush or small paintbrushes work as well.

Feeler Gauge imageFeeler Gauge - for adjusting Serger Timing

For those of you who need to fix their own timing, make sure and read our Service Manual publication for accurate specifications. A feeler gauge for your measurements. Way faster and easier than a caliper to get into all those small spaces and very accurate too.

Available at Harbor Freight for $4.99 (Thanks Karen Wood)
